Thank you notes: 


First I’d like to thank all the great musicians who participated in CGSC! There are 39 unique artists in this crew and each one of them has put their respect and care for the project! 


Also, to the teachers who showed me concepts and paths to new territories. As a wise man once said, we are our own teachers, and those who we call teachers are there to help us discover our own way.


To my family who trusted my choice of following music as a career. It’s not easy but we do learn that anything done with hard work and dedication will pay off.


An album is a seed and this one has been planted, now it’s time to water it so we can all watch the view from the top!
